Let's get this straight, everyone. KITTENS ARE NOT CUTE. I was cute as a kitten, obvs, but not one single kitten has been cute since then. FACT.
They might have big eyes that seem to stare into your very soul but these are googly-eyed little monsters who will sucker you into pandering for their every need. YOU DON'T NEED THAT, right?
Their fluffiness may make you want to pick them up and cuddle them. But do you know what is hidden in that fluff? No, you don't. It could be old bits of mouldering food, twigs, insects, dirt. Who knows? DON'T TAKE THE RISK.
They sometimes look cute playing. Their plump little paws bat at a toy and all you want to do is get down on their level and play too. But a claw is a claw. Get too close to them while they are playing and they could HAVE YOUR EYE OUT. Leave well alone.
So there you have it, peeps. DANGER, DANGER. LEAVE KITTENS ALONE.
